Comparability

This variable is only available for 1970. The classification system used in OCC5YR is the same as that used for OCC (current occupation), except that the latter variable allocates missing values into residual categories (e.g., "clerical and kindred workers - allocated") representing broad occupational groups. All missing values in OCC5YR are given the same code (995, "Occupation not reported"). See also OCC5YR95 for an alternative classification of responses, using the 1950 classification scheme, to facilitate comparisons across time.
